Thank you, tyler, for volunteering. Maybe you (or if you prefer, we) could write to the band contacts and offer this service to them.

The first concert is the highest value to our users because it increases the breadth.

let me know if you would like to do this or let us.

hey brewster... though i'm happy to do the converting, contacting them probably would be a task someone else might want to tackle primarily. I'll still e-mail those I can, all of us should be CC'ing eao and a note in the band details page so we can keep track of it. I just know I'm pretty busy so i wouldn't depend on me to be the primary contacter of the bands.

And I agree, the first show is the more important, as it widens the number of bands involved. I do have some shows already waiting to be converted from some of those '0 shows' bands, so i'll get those up soon hopefully.

So when writing we're just focusing on what exactly?
-Inquiring if a show (if any) exists for that band
-If the band would care to have a archive curator (me) convert the show to a loss-less medium and prepare it for the archive
-Pass on the instructions to them on how to do that (send them my mailing addy, etc.)

what else should we focus on during these contacts? I do have a feeling though, on some of these bands, there exist very few or even 0 live reocrdings, and the contact e-mail is either defunct or they are non-responsive. I tried a similar 'contact the bands with 0 shows' thing last year and out of 20 bands contacted, I received 0 responses of any kind. Here's to hoping we get more of these bands rolling on the archive!

Hey.. Jeremy, with Freak Speely here. I'd love to send some material to be converted. There is a guy that tapes our shows, and never seems to get the job done. Its sad when there are shows floating around, and I don't even get to hear them. My new email address is Someone contact me, and I'll see what I can do about getting something to be converted. Also, I tried once before and everything looked like it went ok, but it never showed up in the archive. Peace
